Outdoor Patio Summer Party Art Direction

Create a summer party with the feel of Mexico, Spain or sunny California! Outdoor patios can be transformed with bright summer colors. I decorated with festive tableware, place mats, dishes, glassware, napkins, place mats, candles and pillows from Pier One. Handmade pottery by Dorothy Dhont gives a unique look to the setting. The succulent arrangement was created from the garden to make the table become part of the background. Lights strung from the ceiling fans give a festive flare to the party. The patio architecture, interior design, landscaping and art direction were all done by Amy Vangsgard.

Above all, have fun
Regardless of all else, a Mexican-inspired style should be playful, celebratory and full of life. Bright colours, pretty patterns, a love for well-crafted artefacts and a generally laid-back atmosphere are at the core of any Mexican-inspired d├ęcor. Spend as much time as possible outdoors, bring as much nature as you can inside and make sure to celebrate and play with your style.
